The Kyrian Covenant of Bastion is one of the Four Covenants that are available in the World of Warcraft Shadowlands Expansion.
In our main guide to Covenants in Shadowlands we discuss the general features shared by all of the Covenants. In this guide we will focus on the unique look and abilities offered by the Kyrian Covenant.
During your adventures you will visit the lands of Bastion first out of the four, followed by the Necrolord Maldraxxus.
Kyrians dedicated themselves to ferrying souls to eternity, with those who can prove their worth in Bastion trials given a chance to carry out an even higher calling among the Archon’s most devoted. However, with the Maw claiming so many souls and the unrest spreading through the Shadowlands, the order’s duties are now in jeopardy.
Bastion itself is characterized by towering spires, clear blue skies, and shiny crystalline, which translates into the order’s glowing blue mech-like plate armor. This look comes with a pair of angelic wings or a jeweled halo attached to the back. The order’s mount will also demonstrate this armored, geometric, jeweled look.
Call your steward to bring you a Phial of Serenity that can be consumed to restore some of your health and remove all Curse, Disease, Poison, and Bleed Effects.
Your Steward additionally offers access to a selection of useful amenities, each once per day.
